Strain: Poison Cherry
Contributor: Missy Matheny
Poison Cherry is a cross between Alien OG and Cherry Pie. Unlike her Cherry Pie lineage suggests, though, Poison Cherry is an indica-dominant hybrid, taking after her Alien OG parent in effects. Not to be confused with her sativa dominant sibling, Cherry Durban Poison. With a strong 24% THC, Poison Cherry is nothing to take lightly.
Juniper green, with spots of even darker green on the tips of the buds, and dark orange hairs clustered in every valley of the nugs. They were small popcorn buds that were extremely dense. Heavily coated in crystals, and very sticky as well. I only had to touch the nugs, and they stuck to my fingers. My grinder was required to break the buds down, as the nugs just stuck to me when I tried breaking them apart.
A very strong herbal smell, with a deep scent of spice, and a touch of sweet cherries to blend it all together. The fragrance was intense, as all I had to was open the jar to have the aroma fill my senses. The strong aroma was reminiscent of good cherry wine, with the strong fragrance of spice and cherries being almost intoxicating.
The deep spice fragrance with light cherries was carried over almost exactly into the flavor. A bit harsh, I could feel every hit I took in my throat, requiring me to have a drink on hand. I almost coughed on one deep inhalation, causing me to be more cautious with the next hit. The flavor was powerful, with a spice after taste on my tongue even after drinking something. The slight hint of cherries was there throughout the entirety of the bowl, but the spice never lessened up.
I felt the effects in my head right away. My body melted almost as quickly. I finished the bowl without issues, but afterward, I wished I had gone a little slower. I’m glad I waited until my day was over to try Poison Cherry, as I was ready to sleep after smoking one bowl. I managed to stay up for another hour after I blazed, and I had zero desire to burn more. When it was finally time for me to call it a night, my head hit the pillow, and I was asleep instantly. I slept very solid and woke up refreshed the next morning.
Product price: $14.50 per gram
I feel this strain is great for insomnia, muscle pain, headaches, complete relaxation of the body and mind, a bit of an appetite stimulant, and couch potato activities. I think this strain might overwhelm newer users, and veteran users might want to take it a little slow. Poison Cherry hit quick and hard. I recommend saving this as an end of the day strain.
Strikingly beautiful buds, darker in color than other strains, with both the Juniper green nugs and the dark orange hairs clustered in the ridges of the buds. Strong aroma and flavor, although it was kinda harsh, the cherry flavor made smoking this strain inviting. Intense effects that hit quickly, lasted a while, and I not only fell asleep quickly and slept well, I woke up feeling good too.

Reef in Sun Valley is the second Reef dispensary in the Reno-Sparks area. Their first store is located in Sparks. The Sun Valley store is a decent sized store, large enough to accommodate a decent-sized crowd. I would say it has an excellent location, in between the two major places to eat in the Sun Valley area, McDonald’s on one side, and Hobey’s Casino on the other. I was greeted by security as I walked in the door. They checked my ID, and I was sent to a budtender. My budtender was aware that it was my first time in the dispensary, and she went over the basics of what the dispensary offers. With a local ID, there is a 10% discount on all purchases. They have a points reward system, for every dollar spent in the store, they give a point to the rewards customer’s account. After accumulating 100 points, the customer receives $1 off their purchase. The points can be built up and used towards any purchase.
